Frank Laughrin did a commendable
piece of work this week in grading
down the street in front of his resi

badly needed, a well as many other

for that work is a little short other
property owners will probably havo to
take tho hint from Mr. Laughriu and

Somebody got busy last week and
put out poison killing nine dogs and
Tom Bulick (tho cat) all in one night.
There is no doubt but that Beaver can
very well afford to spare some of her
canines, but it occurs-to us that this
method of wholesale poisoning is not
just exactly tho proper remedy. Too
often, as in the present case, valuable
dogs are killed ana tho worthless curs
still remain. The best way is to shoot
the dog then there is no mistake. There
are many valuable dogs in town and
dogs on, which tho owners pay tax.
These doiis have as much right in the
street as you or I or anybody elso and
it is a gravo offense to kill such a dog
and one for which the person guilty of
killing could be orosecuted to the full
extent of the law. This poisoning bus
iness is absolutely wrong aud wo hope
our citizens will not indulge in it soon
again Wo reaiizo the situation -and
are ourselves sometimes tempted to
sling; a little poison but that Is not Uie
proper cour&u .-to, pursue. The city

dogs Should -constantly '-trouble" that

Tho twelve days revival at Hibbs,
closing Sunday, November 17, resulted
in four conversions, six sanctificatious
and one reclamation. Three fathers of
families, one of whom is 72 years of
age raised their hands for prayers, and
we trust thoy will continue to seek the
Lord until he is found of them. Let
the people of God continue to pray and
lot the revival continue. The many
anxious souls should search tho scrip
tures and pray through to Christ who
is the salvation of .God, "aud in none
other is there salvation, for neither is
there any other name under Heaven,
that is given among men, wherein we
must be savad,"

H. C. Drum of Beaver County, 0. T.,
is a pioneer settler of state3, Kansas

was a resident of Kansas and was

when he drove cattle across the open

Woman Commits Suicide,
A Mrs. Smith who resided with her
family 4 miles Southeast of Marango
committed suicide the first of the week
by drinking carbolic acid. No one
knew of tho. rash deed until her dead
body was found near a feed stack some
time after life was extinct.
It is presumed that tho unfortunate
woman took her life while temporarily
insane as no motive Is known for such
an action. It is stated that she lost
her mind at one time during tho sum
mer and it is probable that it again be
came unbalanced. Tim cause of her
temporary insanity last summer is said
to bo homesickness, she having remov
ed to their farm from Chicago only a
short time ago.
Lands U. S. Commissioner
Hon. Tom P. Braid wood, 'who was
reported by tho oapsrs early last week
as being appointed U. S. Commission
er for ueaver county, receivcu His
commission Saturday, from Judge
Cotteral. This appointment was a
most worthy ono and well pl-asing to
the people hero who will havo business
before that ofllce. Mr. Braidwood was
tho logical man for tho place and we
aro indeed glad to know of his appoint,
ment. He has a clean, honest record,
both as a public nnd private citizen
and no one can say but that his quali
fications aro first class.
We cheerfully recommend him to
the people of Beaver county as a care
ful and efficient officer and one who
will give the olllce of U. S. Commis
sioner the best possible attention and
servo all promptly and satisfactorily.
A Sad Misfortune .
Ono of tho saddest misfortunes
which has been brought to our atten
tion was that which occurred here
Saturday of last week when Mrs. Wm.
R. Wright and her young son of about
fourteen years, were adjudged insane
by the insanity board and sent to the
stato asylum at Norman.
There is no doubt as to tho insanity
of tho patients for thoy were iu a rav
ing condition und it can only be hoped
that with good caro at the asylum they
may bo restored to their right mind.
Mrs. Wright is very wc'l known to a
wide circle of acquaintances here and
in this vicinity aud they sincerely hopo
that her deranged condition may only
bo a temporary affliction.
The direct cause of tho unbalancing
of the minds of tho mother and son are
not known, but it was probably due to
